In the worst kept secret in the history of secrets, the world is pretending that the identity of Whistlebritches No 1 — Eric Ciamarella — is a secret.
In fact, he has been identified since the very beginning as exactly who anybody with any logic would have thought. Allow me to provide some background info:
Eric is a prep school and Yale grad who is a registered Democrat. He is an active Democrat and has been involved in assisting those engaged in oppo research during the 2016 Presidential election.
He works for the CIA and was detailed to the White House during the Obama admin wherein he worked for Susan Rice, National Security Adviser, and with Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan.
As it turns out, 33-year-old Eric Ciamarella had something to do with the whole “Russian collusion” meme. More about that later.
He is a smart guy with extraordinary language skills: English, Russian, Ukrainian, and Arabic. This — Yale grad, great language skills — is exactly the kind of guy the CIA recruits to be analysts.
In the White House, he was on the Ukraine Desk — logical, right? Speaks the lingo.
In 2017, Eric was sent packing back to the CIA when his fingerprints were detected on a number of leaks to the media. He was already known as a man who was a huge Trump critic, a vocal opponent of the very policies he was employed to advance, and a leaker who had provided classified information to media outlets that resulted in negative stories that unfairly damaged the Trump administration.
He was pals with other NSC employees of a similar ilk — anti-Trump — one of whom, Sean Misko, now works for Adam Schiff, the Chairman of the House Intel Committee who provided aid, succor, and assistance to Eric when he brought them his whistle to be blown.
